Celebrate First Generation College Students at Andersen Library!

It’s National Celebrate First Generation Week! Visit Andersen Library, the UC, and UWW Rock County Campus on November 6, 7, or 8 between 9 am – 4 pm to pick up a button or t-shirt and join us in this campus-wide celebration!

What is first generation? It means a student whose parents did not earn a four-year degree. Did you know? More than one-third of the Warhawks on the Whitewater campus and more than one-half on the Rock County campus are first-generation! The annual First-Generation College Celebration on November 8th commemorates the signing of the Higher Education Act of 1965. It promotes post-secondary access, retention, and completion for today’s limited-income, first-generation college students.

Join us this week as we Celebrate First Generation! Be sure to follow UW-Whitewater social media pages, for they will share stories of the many Warhawk students, alumni, and campus leaders who are PROUD to be first-generation.
